I did find an '89 extended-cab model w. Is there anything else that will pull my load and get better mileage? Is there anything else that will pull my load and get better mileage? What's New For 1994 There were a number of safety-related updates and upgrades for 1994. If so, your not the only one. So it sounds like it's quite fuel-efficient engine for a truck, right?

Torque is up 5 lb-ft to 260 lb-ft as well.
They are rare now in good condition. I'm assuming there'd be fewer connections to the carb, but it'd be nice to know for sure anybody have pictures? It has a few more upgrades but I don't know about downward compatibility with the 96 wiring harness and processor. The engine power specifications remain unchanged 240 horsepower, 340 lb-ft torque , although they did add white as a color for this year. What do you do with the connections - doesn't that cause problems with the computer etc. If anyone could help me i would greatly appreciate it.
Try it with a mazdog and you will see a whole different story. In actual practice very few paid any attention to these numbers, as they only served to complicate the ordering process. The only way I know of for sure, is to verify the bore size. One or two in vans as well. As an aside, 1994 was a big year for the Dodge Ram pickup, it received a full redesign, which is likely why Ford came out with a totally refreshed F-150 in.
The real key is to get people who really know what they are doing to help you select the proper parts and to get it all properly tuned. Below is a picture of it's location marked with a red arrow.

The first and reverse ratios are too high but my trannies have shifted well and smooth. Not much market for it except in full tilt race applications. Note: This is only a rule of thumb, as it may vary depending on the year and model type.
So add another couple of grand to that amount for the cost of having finish machine work done, porting and polishing, valve job, and chamber work. Max overbore on a 300 is. If I was looking at an early 80s I would like the T19 with 3. If this occurs, it is the tank which receives the transfer flow which has the bad shuttle. Parts availability for later models is not an issue. I currently have a 68 with a 240 and the stock 1 barrel and what a nightmare.
The interior has held up well. My understanding is this head has no coolant passageways so its race application is pretty much for drag strips only. Both use the idiotic annular slave cylinder which is prone to failure and which requires you to pull the transmission to change it. So it sounds like it's quite fuel-efficient engine for a truck, right? It will also wear out much more quickly because of the side loads due to the miserable 1. Funny how the new white Lightning sold more than either of the other colors! Now that would be a good one to get. Therefore we will not discuss them in greater detail.
I think you'd be far better off with dished pistons of an upgraded quality. I presume this could result in overfilling of the tank? I had a friend of mine tell me it might be the fuel pressure regulator but i wanted to see what you guys think. I worked at a camp in Wisconsin that still has 6 or 8 of them in thier trucks. Have someone crank the engine and re-check for a dwell signal, you should also see a blue-white spark flashing between the point breakers as they open and close. A mild porting job will actually help in all rpm ranges so long as you do not hog out the ports too large. Obviously a thirty plus year old truck will have more issues than something newer.
I'm assuming there'd be fewer connections to the carb, but it'd be nice to know for sure anybody have pictures? Also when you get it running, use 5 wire to set your timing to 10 degrees with the spout connector at the distributor unplugged. How would I tell if it's a feedback carb or an older one that somebody swapped on? It has been owned and very well maintained by a service tech it's whole life. I'm not sure of which year. Never did hand calculate the mileage but I don't think my old 79 F-150 4x4 ever got any more than 20 mpg. I have several thousands of miles on my 89 Rollback without clutching it.
Thanks again, Mike as a general rule, its best to work on one thing at a time. ? Do it right and you'll likly be happy with the improvement no matter what the final horsepower output really is i was thinking 9:1 C. ? Would and could do everything very well. Anybody have some opinions on this? Cylinder Heads: Depending on the production year, the chamber size, valve size, intake size manifold volume , and carburetion varied considerably. Are there any other four speeds it could possibly be that don't have a granny gear? Is this a good deal? I'd really avoid flat top pistons, too. I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good.
The truck does not get over 3,000 miles per year so it won't need a tune up any time soon. The only trick is determining the difference between a 170ci 4 main and a 200ci 4 main, if there is no block code, as both engines had a three bolt water pump and three freeze plugs. The shuttles sometimes stick open and when they do they allow return flow to go to both tanks simultaneously. I worked at a camp in Wisconsin that still has 6 or 8 of them in thier trucks. Grease the left side of the rubbing block edge if the ignition rotor turns counter-clockwise. They are quite similar to those found on carbs, rear ends and transmissions.
